Shinedown contributed this brand new track, recorded specifically for the Sylvester Stallone movie The Expendables, which was also used in the theatrical trailer. The song was released as a single on June 22, 2010. When Stallone asks you to write a song for his movie, it can be a great career move for a band, as Jim Peterik told us in describing "Eye Of The Tiger."
The "fist-first philosophy" of the lyrics are in line with the movie's storyline of hired guns on a mission to a South American country, with the objective of overturning the cold-blooded despot in charge.
